I took a ton of pictures this week.  It was good to get the camera out again.  Here is one of my favorites:
Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::


  1. I've never read anything by Susan May Warren. I'll have to check her out. Sounds like you had a busy week. I wish our temperatures were like yours. I think our predicted high today is in the 40s. Come see my week here. Have a great week!

  2. One of our local hiking trails goes right through an old ranch. They've turned the old red barn into a museum and I usually have to snap a photo of it when I'm there hiking.

    Saturday was my the junior to cadette bridging ceremony in San Francisco. My daughter and I are sore and sunburnt from our adventure but we had fun. Come see what I'm reading.

  3. That's a beautiful afghan! Such vivid and bold colors. The picture of the red barn is lovely. Looks so peaceful there.

  4. Homemade Shells and Cheese sounds delicious! Have a great week.

  5. Love your granny square afghan, so pretty :) I absolutely LOVE red barns, so really enjoyed your picture.

    Have a good week :)

  6. I love your roundup! The barn- awesome!! And the granny squares-- totally close to my heart! And the verse is one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing! Blessings on you as the Lord guides your day!

  7. What a fun summary of your week... love the barn picture. :)

  8. I came here for the granny square afghan you are working on, but I really like the idea of this post with all about the weather, what you are reading, photos you've taken, etc. It's like a digital journal entry kind of, and I love that!
    I am running a year long Granny-Spiration Challenge, and would love if you came and linked up with us :) There’s also a crochet pattern giveaway going on right now. It can be found here:
